You might want to use ntpd to sync the clock before cron starts if this turns out to be your problem:

Once you have ntpd working, just put ntpd on the require line in the cron startup file, /etc/rc.d/cron, to ensure that cron starts up after ntpd.

...or just buy a new motherboard battery.

Check the clock. Often older systems have dead batteries so the clock is
so far out of whack cron jobs don't run.
